My System Specs


Hmm, the five i7 2600k that I've tried needed at least 1.37v to reach 4.8ghz and 1.45v to reach 5ghz.

The i7 2700k's are binned for higher clocks, the first and only one I ever had was delivered 2 days ago and it reached 4.8ghz at 1.32v and 1.4v for 5ghz.

So if you plan to overclock these over the 4.6ghz range, i7 2700k's are USUALLY better.
